Portsmouth Invitational – Day One Recap

By Carl Berman

 

We have quite a few scouts and correspondents at the PORTSMOUTH INVITATIONAL as well as my partner, Chris Denker. We’ll be reporting on the action there this week.

It’s pretty late now so we’ll make the Day One update a quick one.

 

Which players helped themselves?

RYAN THOMPSON. The 6′6" SG from Rider lit it up in the first game to the tune of 37 points on 14-for-20 shooting and 4-for-5 on three-pointers. He showed that he is athletic enough to play anywhere.

A.J. SLAUGHTER. The 6′3" guard from Western Kentucky shot 10-for-12 and 4-for-5 on threes to go for 28 points in only 21 minutes of action.

GERALD LEE. The 6′10" PF from Finland by way of Old Dominion showed a nice mid-range game in shooting 8-for-15 to score 16 points to go along with nine rebounds.

HAMADY N’DIAYE. The 6′11" post from Rutgers by way of Senegal doesn’t have a lot of offensive skills but he is very long and can run the court. He came up with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

DONALD SLOAN. The 6′3" guard from Texas A&M shot very well in scoring 20 points and was around the ball to grab six rebounds.

DEON THOMPSON. The 6′9" UNC PF grabbed 10 rebounds to go along with 13 points. He was tough on the offensive glass with six offensive boards.

JEREMY LIN. Lin looked capable of playing with the big boys as he scored eight and came up with six assists and only one turnover in 25 minutes of play.

 

Who didn’t impress us?

SYLVESTER SEAY. The 6′9" swing from Fresno State mostly relied on his outside shot which didn’t go down as he shot 1-for-8.

DENIS CLEMENTE. Coming off a nice NCAA tournament for Kansas State the speedy PG was sloppy with the ball in committing five turnovers and only scored four points.

ADAM KOCH. The Northern Iowa forward couldn’t get free and only had four shots, five points, and three turnovers in 25 minutes.

 

We’ll be reporting on the three games tomorrow.
